Not sure if this is in the right section of forum :s but here goes,
im looking to buy a new laptop for under £500 for normal things, but also for mediocre gaming with games such as Battlefield 1942, Medieval 2 total war, Counter Strike Source and especially the up and coming Empire Total war.
I was wondering, on the Empire website it says that the minimum requirements are:
Operating System: Windows XP 32(service pack 2), Windows Vista 32 OS.
Processor: 2.4 GHz Single Core Intel or AMD equivalent processor.
System Memory: 1GB RAM (XP) 2GB RAM (Vista).
Graphics Card: 256MB DirectX 9.0c compatible video card (shader 2.0 or higher).
Sound Card: Directx9.0c compatible sound card.
Windows compatible mouse & keyboard.
15 GB free uncompressed hard drive space.
The laptop im looking at has these specs: (also heres the links for both websites of minimum specs and laptop)
NEWS | Empire: Total War
Toshiba L300 1G9 PDC T3400 4GB 250GB 15.4" Laptop - Tesco.Direct
Processor Intel Pentium Dual Core T3400
Processor Bus 667
Processor Cache 1MB
Processor Speed 2.16
Graphics Shared Intel GL40 (Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500)
Now with the minimum specs for empire total war being a 2.4 GHZ single core processor, and the laptop having a 2.16 GHZ dual
core processor, do you think ill be okay to run the game?
Also, according to Notebookcheck (Notebookcheck: Comparison of Graphic Cards
the GMA 4500 (533MHZ) should be able to handle new games, but on a not so great setting.
Sorry about all this but will the laptop be okay for my needs?
